Prayer Makes the Difference

I got up early one morning
and rushed right into the day
I had so much to accomplish
that I didn't have time to pray


Problem just tumbled about me
and heavier came each task
'Why doesn't God help me ?' I wondered
He answered, 'You didn't ask'

I wanted to see joy and beauty
but the day toiled on gray and bleak
I wondered why God didn't show me
He said, 'But you didn't seek'

I tried to come into God's presence
I used all my keys at the lock
God gently and lovingly chided
'My servant, you didn't knock'

I woke up early this morning
and paused before entering the day
I had so much to accomplish
that I had to take time to pray
